Dancing with the Stars eliminated Barbara Corcoran and her professional partner Keo Motsepe during Monday night's broadcast of the series' 25th season on ABC.

Keo and the Shark Tank star and real estate mogul became the first couple ousted from the competition based on the combination of Dancing with the Stars judges' scores they had received during last week's debut performance show and the home viewer votes that were cast immediately afterwards.

"How am I going to live without [Keo]? It was such an honor and probably the most exciting thing I've ever done in my whole life," Barbara said in her final words. "What am I going to tell my friends?"

Barbara and Keo had finished in thirteenth -- and last -- place on the judges' leaderboard during last week's premiere episode.

Former NFL football wide receiver and six-time Pro Bowler Terrell Owens and partner Cheryl Burke were the other couple in jeopardy of elimination prior to Barbara and Keo's exit, but they were not necessarily one of the bottom-two couples based on the judges' scores and America's votes.

Monday night's show featured Barbara, Terrell and the 11 other celebrities each taking the stage one time with his or her professional partner for Dancing with the Stars' judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman.

Three celebrities tied for the top spot on the judges' leaderboard with 24 points each: Singer and actor Jordan Fisher, TV personality Vanessa Lachey, and former Paralympic swimmer Victoria Arlen.

Jordan and partner Lindsay Arnold danced the Viennese waltz, Vanessa and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy performed a foxtrot routine, and Victoria and partner Val Chmerkovskiy took the stage with a tango number.

Two celebrities also tied for fourth place on the judges' leaderboard with 23 points each -- Actor and racecar driver Frankie Muniz and Pretty Little Liars actress Sasha Pieterse.

Frankie and partner Witney Carson danced the tango, while Sasha and partner Gleb Savchenko tested out the waltz.

Sixth place on the leaderboard also represented a tie between WWE wrestler and Total Divas star Nikki Bella as well as internationally-recognized violinist Lindsey Stirling.

Nikki and partner Artem Chigvintsev performed a waltz that received 21 points from the judges, while Lindsey and Mark danced a 21-point worthy quickstep routine.

Eighth place on the judges' leaderboard was another three-way tie for the couples who had earned 20 points from the judges.

Singer and songwriter Debbie Gibson and partner Alan Bersten performed the quickstep, as did Property Brothers star Drew Scott and partner Emma Slater. Terrell and Cheryl performed the foxtrot.

TV personality and 98 Degrees member Nick Lachey tied with former NBA star and coach Derek Fisher for eleventh place on the leaderboard at 19 points with their partners Peta Murgatroyd and Sharna Burgess, respectively. Both couples danced the foxtrot.

And finally, Barbara and Keo landed in thirteenth -- and last -- place on the leaderboard after they earned only 17 points from the judges for their tango routine.

Dancing with the Stars will air a Tuesday, September 26 episode at 9PM ET/PT in which the 12 remaining couples will each perform a routine for "Latin Night." The pair who had received the lowest number of judges' scores and home viewer votes following Monday night's episode will be sent packing.
